thumbnail Hello,

Crystal Palace looked certain for the drop back into the Championship in the early stages of the season. Under Ian Holloway, the Eagles laboured to just one win from their first nine games.

But Holloway resigned and, a month later former Stoke City boss Tony Pulis took charge at Selhurst Park and had an almost immediate effect on performances and results.

Palace became a tough defensive unit and proved a difficult team to beat under Pulis, averaging the second highest number of tackles per game (22.2) behind Liverpool in the top flight and boasting more interceptions per game (18.3) than any other side.

For all those stats and more, check out the statistical breakdown of Crystal Palace's season below:
